The Nexus 4 is back in stock on the US Play Store (both the 8GB and 16GB models), as predicted. So, if you want one, go buy it. Now. HURRY. Oh, and the bumper case is available too. The Nexus 4 is also in stock in the German Play Store, though bumper cases do not appear to be available in Deutschland.

Update: Looks like sales are now live in Canada, as well.

    Gogogo.. done

  • Aaron Berlin

    Wow, it actually seems to work, too. And without any voodoo, double clicking on buttons upside down, etc. to make it work!

    • GreenyO

      Your post made my day :-)

  • ali

    I just bought one 1-2 weeks shipping. Bumper is there too

    aannnnddd IT'S GONE.

  • ali

    Thank you guys at this forum. I have been checking the ply store at least 20 times a day for 2 months. I can't believe I am getting one for 349. Especially as I almost paid 600 on amazon but resisted. Can't wait for the phone.

    Why not in Spain T_T

    And still nothing on the french Play Store... Thanks to them I now own a Note 2, and I am happy with it :D (even though it was a bit expensive compared to the Nexus 4)

    • evolutionx1

      Same here man.. Waited for the Nexus 4 for so long. got the Note 2 instead.. Pretty happy with it

    • Magnus100

      The Nexus 4 is indeed a great phone but the Note II is a much better phone in most ways. You made the right choice

    • Alex P.

      Same here, got a Note II for myself, and got a Nexus 4 for my son 40 minutes ago.

    • Gobelet

      Same here. It's overly frustrating to see the Canadian, US and German stores all had their stock replenished twice, and us poor bastards have nary a sight of a Nexus. Might be to please SFR or who knows. I'm done waiting for it, I'll get the Xperia Z instead when it comes out.

        Haha, thanks, I just saw that on facebook! But now it's too late, I won't trade my Note 2 for a Nexus 4 :) I just hope that next Nexus launches won't be that bad!

  • Chronus719

    Was hoping that the Wireless Charging Orb would come in stock as well.

    • CA719

      Me too man, me too.

      • Casper

        Would have made the play store crash again.. :)

  • mike

    why not in Greece?

        That looks so pretty.

    I weep for Canada ;_;

    • spacekobra

      Its up bud!

    • selonmoi

      Available in Canada since 1 pm EST. Still just 1-2 weeks for Nexus 4 8GB, 16GB, and bumper.

      • Alex P.

        Got mine at 11:05am (MST)

        • Alex P.

          I received it pretty quickly, in less than a week. My wife asked if I could give it to her. Now it is her phone. She had been making a decision to switch to a smartphone for years. I am glad she had no doubts when she saw the Nexus 4.

  • http://www.facebook.com/archercc Ryan Stewart

    Ugh, I cant even get it to load

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      It's not slow at all over here.

      • http://www.facebook.com/archercc Ryan Stewart

        It might have been my connection. I rebooted my work PC and it loaded right up. While I was waiting i called my girlfriend though and she went through the process and made it all the way to confirmation before it was automatically cancelled. I tried again and went through smoothly.

        I have an email, hopefully soon I'll have a phone and can ditch CDMA. Website said 1-2 weeks, hopefully that is just CYA.

  • http://twitter.com/add119 adam

    i order mine yay!!!

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    Google finally figured out how to run a busy web store.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Or people finally gave up on buying.

    • http://twitter.com/add119 adam

      bullshit google is the problem with shipment . LG had nexus 4 on t mobile since January 23 and ppl seem to be turn off on two year contract.

      • marcusmaximus04

        He's talking about the state of the website, not the number of devices in stock.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        My comment was only related to the technical aspects of running a web store. As in, ordering can be done with no hiccups and crazy errors for hours.

        • Alex P.

          Actually, it refused to accept my credit card on file. I keyed in another one, it failed to post a transaction and accepted my first credit card. Huh?

  • http://twitter.com/add119 adam

    thanks for nexus status update. Now i have gone from nexus s to moto phone if nexus 4 would be in verizon i would of jump on it.

  • QwietStorm

    And right after I ordered a poetic bumper case. Whatever. I was tired of waiting, and I didn't really want to pay damn near $30 anyway.

  • jb

    in for one.. no problems ordering one

  • Paul_Werner

    And now the wait for the official Car Dock that is shown in the LG commercial for this phone. It looked like the Charging Orb but made as a Car Dock instead.

  • selonmoi

    Available in Canada since 1 pm EST. Still just 1-2 weeks for Nexus 4 8GB, 16GB, and bumper. They finally have some serious supply.

  • ProductFRED

    Meh, don't really care for the Nexus 4 anymore. Google and/or LG screwed up the production numbers, and there are other more interesting alternatives out and coming out.

    • Greg Sanders

      For $300?

      I'd like to hear about it.

  • gazelem37

    I wish we had a way to track how many are ordering. By this time whenever the Nexus 4 was available, it had jumped to "Ships in 5-6 weeks". Today it's still holding strong which makes me think we are finally in the clear of having such a shortage. Not to mention that Wirefly, BestBuy, and T-Mobile also have it in stock with the latter of the three carrying it in all retail stores.

  • Guest

    Weeooo got mine! Can't wait :D

  • efan

    come on Nexus 10!

  • Stephen Sharp

    *Heart beating fast* *checks wallet* Well, the voodoo magic that restocked the phone did not do the same for my wallet :P

  • James Jenkins

    Bumpers are showing available in the US too

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      The post already lists the bumpers.

  • Iavn

    Not available in UK yet, still on temporarily out of stock. I have had one for a week already though do doesn't affect me.

  • Casey Mills

    I got screwed with the Nexus 7. I'll wait six months after release before I buy another device from the Play Store.

  • Darkbotic


    Hey guys!

    First of all, sorry for upper case title...
    I want to buy this
    phone as a gift to my girlfriend and I want to know if Google includes
    an invoice or anything that has the price in the shipping package.

    I don't want her to know that this phone was so expensive.

    I would like a response from someone that have received it already.

    Thank you very much!!!

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      You mean that it was so cheap ;-]

    • FrillArtist

      They put an invoice but there's no price.

      • Darkbotic

        Thank you very much for your response.

        Some people says the same as you, that they don't include the price in the invoice but some says that they do. It seems that they're not really consistent.

        Again, thank you. I really appreciate it.

        • FrillArtist

          No problem. Also, when I ordered my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, there was no price on the invoice. Just a slip indicating the name of the product, quantity, my name and address.

  • James Bryant

    Still no love for Australia... Which is crazy cause they make the most profits off us.

  • tery_cota

    I bought mine too after a long wait and almost everyday checking on play store.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

    I've already got a shipping notification with tracking number for the Nexus 4 Bumper. Google is on the ball this time.

  • Adam Coe

    Hey gang, this is a semi-noob question, but here goes...I split my time between Canada and the US, so if I buy a Nexus 4 from the Play Store in the States, can I bring it to Canada and buy a sim and data plan from Virgin Mobile or one of the other Canadian providers? And which provider do you guys recommend for the States? (I work on a cruise ship so don't have much use for a cell phone, but this seems like a great device at a great price...)


    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      Yes, you can absolutely carry the Nexus 4 from one carrier to another without any trouble, it's fully carrier unlocked. Assuming you're not going to do tethering and you're spending more than about 15 days a month in the US, StrightTalk prepaid (monthly) on AT&T towers is a pretty good option. If you're in the country less than 15 days, there are other prepaid options that charge by the day and those would probably be cheaper.

  • tschallb

    Finally got one today! Thanks for the heads up. Did anyone else who ordered and received theirs today notice that box under the Nexus slipcover had been opened up and then taped over again with over so thinner black tape? Very suspicious of a Factory Update...
